Rifle Prep and Safe Thinning September 16, 2021, 06:29:26 PM Posted earlier about my 6.5 PRC break in and zero. That one is ready.Got on a science project I have neglected. Left hand Win 70 Featherweight in 7 WSM. Got off a used rack several years ago. Thought I had a gem. Outward appearance flawless, walnut and steel.Tore into with a deep clean yesterday. Bolt release spring weak. Magazine spring weak. Shot this morning. 3" groups. 140 BT loaded by Federal. Everything shoots BT's. Thought maybe it was my rifle driving. How in the he** the previous owner wore this stick out without a ding is beyond me. Asked repeatedly about why it was traded. Old man said "It kicked too hard." Once burnt, twice learnt.Pulled out my freshly cleaned 6.5 CM X-Bolt. Had never tried 130 Swift or 130 Berger VLD-H in this one. Both shot 1/4" ragged holes. POI was a little different. Will go with the Berger's but know it likes the Swift's also.Bottom Line: Will have a Teslong borescope in my hands in a few days. Twice shy about used rifles after this experience.The Model 70 is proudly displayed on the used rack at Blade and Barrel in Jena, LA.
